GREENPORT, NY —The Greenport junior high and high school Interact Club made Easter special for the entire elementary school Wednesday.

“The club members have worked hard, and we collected and stuffed over 7,000 eggs with 100 golden egg prizes,” said Interact Club co-advisor Carolyn Sweeney; Rebecca Lillis is also an advisor. ‘The afternoon was filled with excitement and smiles as the club members helped the students open their eggs to reveal all the exciting prizes.”

The Interact club is sponsored by the Greenport Rotary Club, with a focus on developing leadership skills while discovering the power of “service above self,” Sweeney said.
